When the water starts warming up in mid-February, our Captain says more species of fish are active.

I'm sure there are more plentiful seasons, but it has been a great experience for us 2 years in a row. We are out for the fun and memories, and if we get a mess of fish for the table even better- we've accomplished that 2 years in a row.

Choose a vessel and trip length appropriate for your angling skills and experience, endurance, affordability, and time available. Don't expect big game on a half day trip on a big boat, and conversely don't expect comfort on a small but fast open fisherman. Most importantly, talk to your captain....tell him or her what you expect, and they'll tell you what experience they can provide.

It’s HOT. Helps if you have some kind of shade. Fishing in Captiva is great year round, but better in the cooler months!

Find a reputable & experienced company to charter your trip. Don’t set your expectations too high, fish are unpredictable. Book a full day trip, this will get you further out in the ocean where the bigger fish are at.
Very good

I'm not an expert, but I think Fort Myers would have something to offer year round.
